The Swallows' First Day Out

Here are some photos Rob took of the swallows nesting in our front porch. We put up a shelf for them, but for some reason they preferred the light fitting. This shows the babies the day before they fledged...

And here they are on their first day out...



There are five of them all together, and they have been practising their acrobatics and fly catching techniques for a few days around the house and nearby fields. They seem to be expanding their property portfolio with a second nest, if the new mud splatters on the wall are anything to go by!
